Talking about SoundLab at ROLI last night

Light night I was speaking about the SoundLab project at ROLI’s regular “Modern Music Industry” event, which I’ve been a big fan of since they started hosting these late last year. It was a really good crowd and I was in the company of some really excellent speakers too.

Anyway, don’t take my word for it, here’s what ROLI said about it in an email they sent today …

“Last night’s Modern Music Industry meet-up was a huge success, gathering over 50 people in our HQ to discuss a range of issues and opportunities effecting the industry. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along, especially our four fantastic speakers, it was a truly inspiring evening. For those of you that couldn’t make it, here’s a short round-up of what happened.

  • Martin Klang spoke about ‘The Owl‘, his open source, programmable effects pedal, and touched on the issues that start-up companies face when raising capital whilst trying to maintain creative control of their company.  
  • Susanna Eastburn, CEO of Sound and Music, shared her thoughts about some of the social problems the music industry is facing, particularly in regards to gender and wealth equality.
  • Ashley Elsdon discussed his involvement in SoundLab, an initiative that is helping people with disabilities gain access to music.
  • Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner shared his experiences of ‘using the technology that is available’ to create his art, from his first 4 track tape recorded to today’s digital tools.

We also had the team from SubPac, who let our guests demo their wearable bass system that transfers low frequencies directly to your body. Plus we had lots of great homemade food courtesy of Cafe ROLI and some impromptu Seaboard performances in our SoundHive. Our next Modern Music Industry meet-up is on the 12th November and we already have multi award winning composer and sound artist Nick Ryan, and Paul Bonham from the London Arts Council lined up to speak. You can register here.”

So if you’re in the area on the 12th, then sign up and I’ll see you in November.
